We were out and about looking for a place to eat after a ballet recital for my oldest daughter. My parents came to visit from out of state and my father is hard to impress. Needless to say, we've gone back about 8 times in the last 4 years and his favorite (and mine) is the crab-stuff flounder. The food... More

From the outside the restaurant doesn't look too exciting...In a strip shopping center. But once inside...It's a nice restaurant with dark wood...Friendly service...And yummy food. I recommend the lasagna!

Most all Italian Restaurants have their own special red pasta sauce. Some I believe came out of a can. It was not the case here. The sauce was different and distinct. No tart and overly tomato taste. Excellent, rich flavor.

The salad was average and the house Italian dressing is weak and needs more vinegar in it to give it a little punch. The lemon chicken was absolutely delicious. A small place but good place for a nice meal.

We stopped at pasta house heading to an appointment at the nearby hospital. What a pleasant surprise. The atmosphere was so pleasant. My daughter loved the spaghetti. And the chicken parmigiana was amazing. No fried patties here. Fresh chicken breast. Will definitely be back.

With Groupon in hand I was looking forward to a pleasant meal but was disappointed. The best part of the meal was the service; which was the right combination of being efficient, appropriately chatty, and just good at her job. I would suggest that the server personalize the experience with stating her name. We ordered the lasagna and eggplant parmesan;... More

We come here often. It is not your run of the mill Italian restaurant. The food is excellent and you can find unusual items. All of the pasta is made in house. Service is friendly and attentive. Usually you can find a groupon which helps as the prices are a little higher than some places, but worth it.

We ordered food to take-out on a Sunday afternoon. We called ahead and the food was ready and waiting when we arrived 30-45 minutes later. We ordered two Pasta House Special Salads, and Lasagna which came with a side salad. Everything came with sliced bread, but they didn't give us any butter for it. The salads were good with a...

I met three friends for lunch today at Pasta House and had a great experience. Our server, Carla, was friendly and very accommodating, even taking the time to take pictures of our group with our cell phones and camera. I ordered the Greek salad which was fresh and delicious. The ricotta cheesecake with raspberry sauce was light and very tasty.... More
